At Last ...

... we had some snow! Not much compared to some places around the globe but enough to make a snow angel, which was Issy's dearest wish! The girls jumped up to see what the Easter bunny had delivered and Issy promptly got dressed and rushed outside. Dh followed and as it fell more Hettie got her act together and joined them. All went well until the cold and wet suddenly hit Issy and she rushed back in crying because she was 'stinging'. Hot baths for all !!

I tidied and cleaned through before our family turned up to spend the afternoon and as it happens the evening as well, 'cos no-one went home until 10pm. Fortunately dh's cousin and SIL bought all the food. We set the chocolate fountain up later and they all stuffed themselves full of more chocolate - well it is Easter. The snow was gone by this afternoon! The children all played nicely together and the house looks vaguely like a bomb has gone off, but as the adults polished off quite a large amount of wine, I'm not too bothered.

Mmmm Yum Yum !!

J may have been the smallest but he ate the most marsh mallows!

My BIL suddenly became a maestro!

Happy Easter!

I love the snow pictures with your daughter making a snow angel. This sounds like such a nice day. We had family over and lots of food also. Happy Easter.

What a lovely day, family and snow - what could be better?

I'm quite envious, lol!

Ohh, snow you lucky thing. It sounds like you had a lovely time.
You even had a chocolate fountain to top it all off. I like your kind of party!!

Looks like everyone had fun! We did the chocolate fountain thing too! Marshmallows are my Peters favorite too. In fact he was trying to roast them over the candle flame on Easter day!

I'm so happy you got your snow! I wish we could have sent you bags and bags full from our house. Ours is *almost* gone now. Yay!
